The Patio is uniquely located in the central district of L'Eixample, Barcelona. It is one of a row of fireman's cottages hidden at the back of the large apartment blocks in L'Eixample. You walk through the ground floor and out the back to find an amazingly quiet spot. You can't hear a thing.
Liz and Tony are extremely warm and knowledgeable hosts. Although they sound like a traditional English couple, Tony is Catalan and plays darts for a pub team! Liz, who has been in Barcelona for 30 years, will greet you with a Yorkshire/Lancashire accent that is still there when she speaks Spanish.
Staying in B&Bs is about experiencing interesting places, meeting people and getting a better insight into what's going on. Liz and Tony are very easy to speak to, know their area extremely well and make you feel immediately at home. We have been to Barcelona a number of times, so it was good to get recommendations off the usual list.
There is a shared bathroom, which is clearly stated in the blurb, but if there are people using the other room, it's easy to suggest timing slots for the morning.
We really enjoyed our time there.More
